Any of you hosers going? I hear the man Himself may be there, which means Aimee and I are extra-super-officially un-invited even for our usual lunch break training session on Saturday. Weak.

Now that's messed up.

You train there, right...there is at least one guy from the P&B going...he's started a OL club at his university, yet has never had any coaching, and is making it a nice drive down the coast with his GF.

It actually sounds like the kind of event I would attend.

Mike Burgener actually builds champions from the ground up.

Greg,
I'm pissed about it already and I'm not even going to be there!

Greg your dry humour is half the fun... If there is a fitness event I will make time to repeat on a yearly basis it is the Burg seminar! Coach B. has influenced my training more then anyone.

I was going to suggest sponsering you guys as members of CrossFit Mobile for the CrossFit Games but apparently you have to be from the same city? How does a mobile affiliate serving multiple cities bring support then? I feel discriminated against, lol, j/k.

I should just have you register with aliases and give you fake canadian IDs,I could arrange it, just don't try using them coming over the boarder. That would be bad!

Greg,

Suffice it to say that we are mad for you! That is some BS, god forbid you go over there and workout it. All the advice you still dole out over at the main board must be part of the larger DJ/Gym Jones/PM merger that I've read all about. One word: RIDICULOUS.

I am masterminding that merger as I type this.

Why do we need a gay porn star?

All I want to do is train with my coach and support him during the seminar--he (and the attendees) need qualified coaches, not just people wearing CF T-shirts. I emailed Glassman and said as much--that I heard I was no longer welcome at the event, but I have no nefarious plans for subverting his organization with my presence and just wanted to help my coach, which would be helping him at the same time, which seems to me would make him look good--and I never received a response.

Pierre - you don't want me representing you. I may do all right on the CF total, but I'd probably sneak out before the other events.

Weaksauce. So much pettiness. And Greg, that was one complicated sentence. You English majors make my brain hurt.

i agree with greg. we like to go to help our coach teach o'lifting the right way. we would go to support him, not crossfit. when we got banned from attending the seminars, the past few times we still went during the lunch break to train, and this week we are not going to. I wonder if it has anything to do with my wearing performance menu (http://www.aimeeanaya.com/gallery/video/snatch%2086.AVI) gear last time i went to train in front of the up and coming crossfitters...

More Hemmingway; less Faulkner. :)

Agreed--it does seem a little petty.

So you can't go and train on your normal day? All because Napolean doesn't want that? Sorry, but that's bull shit. I know my guys that do MMA with me, can wherever and with whomever they want. Everyone learns that way. Group thought, bully, selfish attitude helps no one, and look at the barrier it causes because one person can't control his temper. Sad really.

exactly. more importantly, aimee, who is preparing for the nationals in may and trying to make the 07 world team (for which the nationals are the primary qualifier) can't come and train with her coach because she's my girlfriend and is therefore by association persona non grata.

No. My stage name was Buck Naked (George Costanza reference).

Bill Fox was called a gay porn star by our loveable friend, Walshy.

Greg,
Props to you and Aimee for taking the high road. I can understand what a tough position this puts you, Aimee, and Coach B in. All of you just want to impart knowledge and you're being frustrated at each turn.

Give Mike my best. I love that weightroom at RBVHS.

Does Robb know he's been replaced??? :eek:

Ahhh...someone caught on to my lame attempt at being witty....I need more references and footnotes in my jokes.....

I wish I lived on the other coast and could go to a Coach B seminar....all I'm stuck with is the trainer at my gym who wants to tell me all about how he just read a book about kettlebells....Yippeeeee....

Well man I am sorry to hear that for her sake. Really puts light on some things though doesn't it lol. I can tell you though, if you and Robb continue with SBG you will NEVER run into that problem. Good luck to her, I know missing that session will suck, but I am sure she will do great either way.

Greg,
ahh the whole point of the sponsorship was to work with Robb's idea of getting trashed in the parking lot! Hell I'm going to go to the games but chances of me competing are slim that would involve me actually working out, and I'm not about that, getting all sweaty and shit thats just not my style!

Anyhow Aimee you're going to kick ass in May either way...

Greg,
spend the Saturday with your girlfriend for f@C$ sakes, use it to your advantage, relax, get a massage, something, but its not worth getting worked up about when there are other ways that you and Aimee can help Aimee train!

I'm just trying to give you guys a reason to feel better about it... :)

CF mainpage features a pic from the Burgener clinic.
Comments:
I like the new CF shirt. Something about go ahead and cry, but don't be a baby. Funny. Sort of.

Who's the guy standing behind Mike? Kind of has that crazed psychopathic hippie look to him. I think it may be Doug from Fullerton.
